Had dinner here on a Saturday night. We were going to a show and resevered a table just hours before. Got a table downstairs very close to other diners, but as we got over the intimacy issue everything was fine. We ordered the 5 course Chef's Menu and was very happy with that. Great difference in food, and everything tasted... More

Had a 5 course meal, including their amazing Peking duck. Wery pleased with the food, and they make good wine recomendations. The alternative is to go with their wine package, that compliments the food. The only downside to the experience is that it's always fully booked, so you'll have to finish your dinner in two hours... Going back in November... More

Get a crispy duck for 2. After that don't skimp on the dessert and dessert wine match! Money well spent to a great business. The greatest restraunt in Oslo? Yes

We did our Thursday night dinner club here and it was excellent. 3 of us had the king prawns of varying heat and we were all very pleased. Nice size portions. We all had different appetizers. Not large enough to share but all were tasty. Service was attentive without being overbearing. Each of our dinners with appetizer and drinks were... More

Had a business lunch at Dinner and ordered crispy duck and some Dim Sum. My favorites. The place has been refurnished and got a new and darker "look and feel". More modern, but maby too dark? Well, i was here for a good lunch and talk business. The meal was served quickly and with a profession. The meat was perfect,... More

We've been here many times over the years, and the food is always good and sometimes great. This time we celebrated a birthday, with dim sum for starters, crispy duck and dry fried beef for main course. We finished with mango pudding and chocolate fondant. Nicely presented food, good and clear tastes, polite service and newly decorated rooms. Some minor... More

A nice place in the middle of the city centre. Nicely served asian food. Loved the dumplings, can recommend it. Stuff is friendly and helpful. The only disadvantage is that place is very popular and you have a feeling you have to rush as next customers will come soon and it seems a bit too dark in the restaurant as... More

I am good at tasting Chinese food as I am making the dishes my self. If you put too much salt in the food I suggest not charge your customers for it. I really do not know what keeps people coming back. To us there is no magic left at Dinner anymore.

This is not a pop-up novelty-restaurant. They have been in Oslo for years, and remain famous for steady style of superb szechuan and cantonese kitchen. I have tasted most dishes in the menu and can safely recommend this place. It may not be ideal for children as the food is fiery (which I love). Good place for couples, even better... More

A great place in the middle of the city center! They serve Asian food in a great way. Great service and presentation. It is a bit pricy but not too high. You should make a reservation! Try the Jade Menu. Many delicious tastes!
